Jane Fairfield

wedding planner

A fairy tale wedding doesn't just happen, it's planned!

My name is Jane Fairfield. Together with my husband of 27 years, Scott, we have started a wedding planning business named Forever & Always Wedding Planning. Our home base is in Gillette, Wyoming but we serve the surrounding area as well. Attention to detail is the driving force behind Forever & Always. It begins with the ability to listen to every client. We're here to facilitate ideas into rality, give guidance, direction and support. Our job is to make your wedding a reflection of you, to make it as easy and stress-free as possible. Our guarantee is: This will always be YOUR wedding.

I graduated with a degree in elementary education and a minor in art. After teaching for over 20 years, I decided to look at other possibilities for my life course. I started working at World wide Travel in 1995 where I planned many family vacations and honeymoons. I have worked with many different tour companies and airlines in my job. I have also planned several destination weddings at various places around the world. It has been my pleasure to work with brides and grooms in the midst of planning the most important day of their lives. I have been on several trips to Mexico to visti with the wedding coordinators at different resorts. It has been a joy working with young couples on their honeymoons. They have gone on cruises to the Caribbean and to Alaska, to some of the most beautiful resorts in the Caribbean and to Hawaii. In my career as a travel agent I have seen the need for a qualified wedding planner in our part of Wyoming, Southern Montana and also western South Dakota. Starting my own company gives me the opportunity to use my creativity to its fullest potential and gives me the ability to give my brides and grooms the respect and attention that they deserve.

Services

Forever & Always offers 4 levels of service. They go from basic consultations through complete wedding planning services. The initial consultation is free. It's where we sit down and get to know one another. You feel free to ask me any question you want and I will ask you about your likes, dislikes, your interests, your vision for the wedding, and other pertinent questions so I can catch that vision. Then I will take all that and come up with a plan to make your wedding the most special day of your life.

Level 1) Consultation - Together we discuss the major elements of planning a wedding. You will leave with a personalized folder that contains helpful tools such as budget sheets and a list of local vendors. You can take that information home and work out the details on your own.

Level 2) Planning & Preparation - After I am hired, I will follow through by finding the vendors and services that we have determined are the best match for your big day. I will handle the details of coordinating the ceremony, the reception and other wedding-related events.

Level 3) Day of Service - Day of services applies to any parties, activities or ceremonies you want me to oversee on the day they're held. These services require a lot of advance planning and preparations so I never approach them as a one-day assignment. At this level you hire me to give direction, solve problems, and to lend a hand wherever I am needed.

Level 4) Complete Wedding Planning Services - At this lever of service I would plan and coordinate all details and events prior to the wedding. This would include planning the ceremony,the reception and any other pre-wedding events such as showers and dinners. I would provide day of services during all wedding-related events. I would also help with any post-wedding tasks such as thank you notes and honeymoon plans.
